In a letter to Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra, Mr. Roy denounced the proposal, which he said would infringe on U.S. sovereignty in favor of the Chinese Communist Party-linked international organization. …

A draft version of the treaty is available online. …

“The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of State … should cease all efforts to further legitimize this corrupt body by crafting a new global pandemic treaty,” Mr. Roy wrote in his letter to Mr. Becerra.

Pointing to a series of “deeply problematic” provisions in the proposed treaty, he said the United States shouldn’t seek closer ties with the WHO.

For instance, one aspect of the treaty would mandate that members work together to “combat false, misleading, misinformation or disinformation.”

That provision and others, Mr. Roy wrote, “[stand] in opposition to our country’s founding principles” and would “stifle free speech.” …

Concerns About Chinese Communist Party

Mr. Roy also cited the WHO’s links to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic as “disqualifying” it from U.S. support.

“The WHO’s inept handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, close ties with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and endorsement of divisive political ideologies disqualify it from the United States’ membership and taxpayer support,” he wrote. …

Demand for Senate Approval

Mr. Roy also demanded that the treaty, if it should advance, be brought to a vote in the Senate, as required by the U.S. Constitution. The demand comes as other international agreements, including the Paris Climate Accords, never came to a vote in the upper chamber.

“Our founders wisely empowered the Senate with the authority to sign off on international agreements to ensure the country is not rushed into a treaty without significant discussion in Congress,” he wrote. “Any effort to circumvent Congress and join any WHO-related agreement or treaty would be an affront to the Constitution.”

Should the administration proceed with the treaty, Mr. Roy said he would seek to have Congress withhold funding from enforcing the agreement. …
